Description

Here is a first edition copy of “Ojo in Oz”, one of the harder to find and thus more desirable vintage Oz titles. Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, successor to L. Frank Baum. Copyright 1933 by Reilly & Lee, this is a 1st edition, first printing with 12 beautiful color plates by John R. Neill. This book was only issued for about two years with the plates, because In 1935 Reilly & Lee stopped including the color plates to cut costs. This book is in the “B” binding, (according to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum), with the semi-script publisher’s imprint.

The book exterior is in very good condition, clean and bright with a little wear to base of spine. Inside, the front hinge is just starting to crack a little and the rear hinge is badly cracked, with the mull slightly broken, but holding (see last photo). The Book Belongs Page To is blank and pages are in good condition, but do have a little foxing and finger soiling, as well as some spots at edge of text block as shown. All 12 plates are present and in excellent condition.
